Online communities have been rife the past few days with posts accusing Red Velvet‘s Yeri of allegedly copying BLACKPINK‘s Jennie. However, all these have been debunked by one sharp netizen. The netizen pointed out that although netizens accused Yeri of copying Jennie’s poses and photo set ups, the truth is, Yeri had posted the photos earlier than Jennie.

Although the two had taken photos with similar backgrounds, Yeri had taken hers a week before Jennie. Furthermore, as idols often fly overseas for events, it’s ridiculous that people compare the two just because of the similar background! Yeri also faced criticism for sporting the same moon-motif hairband as Jennie. However, Yeri had posted it months before Jennie. The brand is also known for sponsoring many K-Pop celebrities, making the claim invalid.

Netizens were also accusing Yeri of copying Jennie whenever Jennie posted photos with her pups. However, Yeri also has always taken many photos with her puppies. As an animal-lover, she posts frequent selfies with her loved ones.

The two are also really close – they’ve even done an Instagram live together! Jennie treats Yeri as a cute younger sister.
